    Click here to watch Congressman Brady on Fox News. Washington, DC – Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) released the following statement after voting to support the national emergency declared by President Trump: "President Trump has the legal and constitutional right to declare a national emergency, and I continue to support the President in his efforts to secure our southern border.

    “Doesn’t she know how tax refunds work?”. That’s what I heard repeatedly from folks I visited this past week while traveling my nine-county congressional district. They were referencing a Democratic presidential candidate from California who – like others in her party and many media “experts” – shamelessly peddled the claim that smaller tax refunds means higher taxes. It was quickly debunked. The Washington Post called the claim “misleading and nonsensical.” My constituents here in Texas know: Y... Read more

    US Daily Review Congressman Kevin Brady released the following statement after voting against H.J. Res. 31, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019: “Congresswoman Kay Granger of Texas did a remarkable job leading the negotiations for House Republicans, and secured every dime she could from Democrats who vowed not to spend one dollar on a physical barrier for our southern border. “The spending bill is certainly a first step towards securing our nation’s border but I believe Congress should d...

    Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee put their“attack President Trump at all costs”agenda on full display last week, holding a hearing focused on forcing the IRS to hand over the President’s tax returns. Let me be clear – this is not about whether or not the President should voluntarily release his tax returns. This is about an abuse of power by Congress. Our tax code should never be weaponized for a purely partisan attack on someone’s political enemies. This sets a very dangerous pr... Read more

    There is an untold story behind the weekend announcement that the federal government would reopen until February 15. Lawmakers in both parties will work to find common ground on the stalemate that partially closed the government for 35 days. Speaker Nancy Pelosi crowed “our unity is our power”. But in the House her total refusal to negotiate with President Trump and find a compromise was quickly and quietly eroding this support beneath her. On January 17, Republicans offered a motion on the Hous... Read more

    This government shutdown is unnecessary. Newly elected Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer should stay at the table with President Trump and find common ground that secures our border, funds crucial disaster relief, and reopens our government. No one should work without pay, including many of our federal workers who rely on that steady paycheck to provide for their families. That’s why I supported legislation before the government shutdown to fund $5.7 billion for border sec... Read more

Because when I, up here, read and see what he's talking about, versus what's covered in the national media, it is dramatical... Read more
